Well Doug, however fumblingly done, and since some say that imitation is the
sincerest form of flattery, I see a truce flag waving and a proposal for a
cease-fire somewher in all that whinning.

Maybe Vlad is already sobering up - or the garlic pills are beginning to
take effect on Rodwell and malecki's fangs and our rusky can now finally
find his brain under all that gasified vodka cloud.  Maybe he - and anybody
else interested in making revolution - will now be ready to do some serious
study of what the counter-revolutionaries of TODAY have learned since 1917.

It is with that in mind that I am bothering to translate those interviews
with the top military brass and counter-revolutionary intellectuals of a
country in revolution - TODAY - not decades ago.

Know thy enemy and win a thousand battles! heh?
